It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
! Today we have a sketch by Amy
and here’s what I did with it!
These pinwheels from The Greetery are about as fun as it gets to use!! They are dies, then colored using stencils. I love the result! I'm not usually a gold person but I love the celebratory look of the shiny gold sentiment, the sparkly dots and the star sequins. I pushed the sketch a bit. I originally had a layer to put the "happy" on, but it just covered too much of those pinwheels and I wanted to keep the happy as a stand-alone. So I convinced myself that the sketch has a unique shaped layer and my "happy" is a unique shape(?) - so it works!
I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

I meant to stop by and leave you a comment on Wednesday, but somehow time has just gotten away from me. Let me just say that I LOVE THIS CARD. Not a little bit, but tons and tons. Your cards are always amazing, but this one, for me at least, has become my favorite. The colors, the design, the gold, are all brilliant. Guess I'll be doing a little shopping - if The Greetery hasn't sold out of this after everyone has seen your card! Hope all is well with you. Hanging in here, though some days are harder than others. Seeing this, however, makes my heart light. xo BevReplyDelete
